Santa’s Grotto at Lache Christmas Fayre

22 December 2015

Excitable youngsters were able to visit Santa and his elves in a magical grotto at a Christmas fayre in Lache thanks to Sanctuary Housing.

Sanctuary in Chester’s resident involvement team organised the grotto in Lache

Staff from the leading housing association’s resident Involvement team built the grotto and donned elf outfits at the fayre which was organised by volunteers at Lache Community Centre on Hawthorne Road.

Children in Lache received presents organised by Sanctuary

The elves also handed out festive goody bags which included toys, sweets and tangerines, while the children’s parents were able to browse a variety of stalls including Lache Children’s Centre; Veg Out, a scheme which provides seasonal fruit and vegetables to local residents at reasonable prices; and Messy Church at St Mark’s.

Pupils from Lache and St.Clare’s Primary Schools sang Christmas carols at the fayre

Visitors were also treated to a carol concert performed by students from Lache and St Clare’s Catholic Primary Schools.

Sanctuary Housing resident involvement officer, Ann Dooney, said: “This was a fantastic event to support with more than 80 children visiting the grotto to see Santa and his elves.”
